In honor of Memorial Day, Charlotte and I at Benson Memorial Library have set up a display of service-related books and articles. Included are selections from our collection of materials from the 2009 visit of the Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall.
On display and available for reading we have featured photos of local veterans who visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, “Viet Nam Wall Speech” by Dr. Richard Petroski, a speech given by a Korean Conflict veteran, and newspaper clippings.
Included in the collection is also a list of local servicemen who were killed during the Vietnam War. They are listed below in a table including name, rank, age, birth, residence, death, location of death, assignment, burial location, and wall location.
We honor and remember all our servicemen and women and their families from all times, peace and war, this memorial day.
Thank you for your service.
